    16 Tooth Front Sprocket

    These sprockets are a high quality product, made of tough steel in the "Diamond-Cut" procedure.
    The F650 GS Twin and F800 GS come standard with the following sprocket sizes: (Number of teeth Front / Rear)

      F650 GS Twin: 17/41
      F800 GS: 16/42

    The F650 GS twin is geared taller than the F800, better for touring and street riding, plus increased fuel economy is achieved through lower engine RPMs at any given speed. If you are riding off road however, and could use a bit more low-end power, installing our sprockets can allow you to lower your gearing like the F800 GS

    Conversely, the F800 GS has a very low gearing, perfect for off road but if you are finding that most of your riding is on the pavement, you may benefit from a taller gearing ratio. This will reduce the engine speed necessary to move you down the road.

    Either way, replacing the front (counter) sprocket will result in the most change but for optimal results in either direction, changing both front and rear sprockets is recommended.

    We also have a 17 tooth front sprocket and two rear sprockets available. See under the Related Products:

    High performance upgrade for low $$ and effort
    | August 20th, 2021
    The F650 has a marvelous engine but poorly matched to my preferred style of riding on dirt roads. This 16 tooth gear was exactly what I needed. It has improved the whole feel of the bike, was easy to install, and a better looking piece of hardware than the original. Also discovered a mound of dried lube inside the cover that was dragging on the chain from a prior owner. Chain needed adjustment anyway so win, win, win. Unless you are always cruising at maximum speed down the highway this is a great upgrade.

    16 tooth front sproket
    (Claremont, CA, CA) | May 29th, 2014
    Tis sprocket was a perfect and effortless fit. Took all of 45 minutes to install and most of that time was to properly adjust the chain tension. The 16 tooth over the 17 tooth makes a noticeable difference on the F650GS twin. Takeoffs are effortless and it has a nice launch now if you power through the gears.
